Pray: I want to delight to do your will, but sometimes the strength is not in me. I begin to doubt that you can even love me. Please give me eyes to see, a mind to understand, and a heart to believe the truth about how much you really do love me.
Then I said, “Behold, I have come;
in the scroll of the book it is written of me:
I delight to do your will, O my God;
your law is within my heart.”
There is not a single person who is righteous enough to be loved by God. This is because each of us is required by God to love him with all one’s heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love others as oneself. No one has ever loved God like that. That’s why we need a savior and deliverer.
I need Jesus!
He is the only one who has walked this earth without ever sinning. He’s the only one who always delighted to do God the Father’s will. Therefore, Jesus is the only one worthy of God’s love and who loves God completely.
Thank you, Jesus, for being consumed with doing God’s will and for being strengthened to save your people from their sins.
Jesus, because you loved God fully from your heart, I am loved fully by God from his heart.
You are my Savior and my Deliverer who endured the cross with joy because this is what the law required. My heart cries out:
But may all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who love your salvation
say continually, “Great is the Lord!”
As for me, I am poor and needy,
but the Lord takes thought for me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
do not delay, O my God!
Knowing I am fully loved by you love and having your Spirit dwelling within me, I have the strength to delight in doing your will!
